A little about us...

Sustainable living through education & farming.

Olin and Leigh Funderburk jumped off the corporate ladder to start a small sustainable farm in Franklin, Tennessee.  Their life’s passion is teaching others how to grow their own healthy food without pesticides and using resources sustainably for future generations.  They have developed numerous resources to teach others the freedom of self-sufficient living and they want to share it all with you!
